#624 St Michael's in Hamburg

From just about anywhere in the city of Hamburg, you can see the spire of St. Michael's church and today we proved it.

We walked all over the city and used this landmark to get our bearings just as the captains of the ships sailing up the Elbe. Even while indoors at the Miniature Wonderland, we spied St. Michael's church - the miniature version.

During the afternoon, we visited the church interior just in time to hear the choir sing This Little Light of Mine.  We climbed to the top of the St. Michael's tower for breathtaking views of the city and the river.  We tried to find the MV Explorer docked in HafenCity but it has not yet arrived from Bremerhaven 
We finished our day by returning to the church and walking across the street to the Old Commercial Room to dine on pickled herring, labskaus, and Hefeweizen.

Yours with an eye on the tower,
